Before we go any farther, let me state that this little nugget (thanks, Peter) comes from a guy who covers the Miami Dolphins. That’s not to say it isn’t true, but it didn’t come from someone in Washington D.C., Nashville or Austin, TX.
Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has a story on who the Dolphins might be interested in bringing in to strengthen the quarterback position, and he mentions Vince Young as a possibility.
But, during the discussion, he throws it out there that he’s hearing that the Washington Redskins are the front-runners for VY’s services. Really?
“I’m hearing the Redskins are the front-runner for his services, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Dolphins get in the game,” Kelly writes.
Is it possible that the Redskins could take yet another step backwards in the Mike Shanahan era? Bringing in Donovan McNabb didn’t work. Not just because he didn’t play his best football, but because Mike and his son Kyle thoroughly botched the whole situation. So, they would really consider bringing in a guy who has nice W/L stats, but is probably the farthest thing from being a leader as there is in the NFL?
Again, we don’t know this for sure, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the Redskins scooped him up in free agency.
